The Upsetter: The Music and Genius of Lee “Scratch” Perry
By Ethan Higbee and Adam Bhala Lough

Agitator. Innovator. Genius. Bear witness to the legend that is Lee “Scratch” Perry. From his early days as a mentor to the young Bob Marley, to his peak music making period of the mid to late 70s, known as the Black Ark Studio years (the studio he built out of a shack, and subsequently burned down during a drug-fuelled frenzy), this film is an intoxicating interview, Reggae and dub filled extravaganza, venerating the life and times of a man once called “the Salvador Dali of Reggae.” (2008, 90 min, digital video)
